Abstract

During machining occurring losses conduct into the machine tool and lead to deformations that im-pair the machining accuracy. Thus, high effort is invested into the compensation of thermo-elastic er-rors. One new approach is to use the information extractable from part programs in combination with CNC controller systems to forecast occurring losses in terms of a look ahead function. The method al-lows the evaluation of part programs with respect to its thermal influence on the machine tool. There-fore, the method is applied on selected part programs, resulting loss distributions are discussed in terms of their thermal impact, and potential follow-up strategies are stated.
